Springsteen - say what you want about the boss and his music - but his fan base is just as fanatical about his live music - and there are many hard core fans willing to travel the world to see him perform - obviously not the Dead scene - but as close to fanatical a fan base as I can comapre to dead heads

Anyone been to a Pearl Jam show in the last 10 years? Very comparable to what the Dead had going sans the full on shakedown street experience outside (not always a plus in my book).

And I was sorry to find this was not a Lady Gaga thread...

Pearl Jam and Sprinsteen are excellent examples.

But let's come back in, say 20 years and see what's going on with that fan base. I'm sure they'll still have devotees, but how many of them will have started "After the music stops"? Time will tell.

How about Jommy Buffet. His fans are pretty devout. And with buffet, its not just about the music, there is also a "scene" that goes along with it

I guess I'm going to throw out THE WHO ,they've had this resugence including the Super Bowl and soundtracks to commercials and multiple t.v.shows They still tour albeit w/o the same vigor of years ago. Personally it's time to hang up the Strat, adding to this out of 4 original players only 2 are left.
That in it's self bothers me.

Again, my point always drifts back to how the influence of the artists after they stopped performing inspires new fans, and not just your ordinary fan, but seething, all-or-nothing, yeah I want 58 versions of the same song kind of fan.

I guess it is all up to how you define "fan", and whether or not it is even possible to compare a Dead fan with anyone else. And what defines a true fan anyway? That is another discussion I suppose.
